Avoid the high laser rejuvenation cost

Laser rejuvenation has been a boon in the anti-aging industry over the last 10 years as practitioners and clients alike come to realise that this new technology can keep the scalpel away.

But laser rejuvenation can also be very costly–up to thousands of dollars per session. It can also be very painful and require a lot of recovery time.

So it’s good to know that, thanks to the latest technology, there are a number of new skin rejuvenation treatments that are just as effective as laser rejuvenation, without the high cost.

At Facial Care By Sia, we have scoured the globe to bring you the very latest in skin rejuvenation technology. Using our new diagnostic technology, we can not only analyse the skin’s condition now, we can also project the affects of the aging process on the skin in five years. Using this technology, we can design a preventative skin care program that can repair any existing skin problems now and in the future.

Then, using our natural skin treatments like Mediderm Visage, the Regen Pen, our skin firming technology, chemical-free skin care, phototherapy and more, we can rejuvenate the skin without the costs, pain or recovery time of laser rejuvenation. Find out more here or contact us.

Chemical Peels: are they worth it?

Before you consider getting a harsh chemical peel, read this….

Chemical peels were very popular twenty years ago after scientists discovered that slightly wounding the skin causes a release of extra collagen and elastin, which improves the look of wrinkles and sagging.

But we at Facial Care By Sia believe the name says it all: ‘chemical’ peel. Chemical peels not only use harsh chemicals to damage your skin, they also result in damage to the epidermal barrier and a build-up of scar tissue between the upper skin layers and the dermis, both of which result in a thinning of the dermis and an acceleration of aging.

Science has come a long way since the chemical peel, and has resulted in Facial Care By Sia’s ‘Inside Out Peel’. We now know there are many ways to get the same anti-aging benefits of a chemical peel, without the harsh chemicals or skin damage.

Using our Inside Out Peel we deliver nutrients right to the skin’s dermis—the supportive layer of the skin—to increase the release of collagen and elastin. Our Inside Out Peel also gently restore the epidermal barrier, which is crucial for skin health, and ‘gobble up’ loose skin cells and scar tissue.

This results in amazing skin rejuvenation without recovery time or pain or skin damage. So instead of an old chemical peel, visit Facial Care By Sia and see how we can use the latest research and technology to gently wash away the signs of aging without chemicals.

 

Looking for the best facial? We’ve got it at Facial Care By Sia.

Most facials work on the upper layers of the skin, giving you a lovely, buff shine and polish.

But at Facial Care By Sia, we think if you’re going to take the time to get a facial, it may as well be the best it can possibly be. And why are our amazing facials, called Mediderm Visage, the best facials around? Simple, they are medical grade.

This means all that beautiful moisture-boosting, nutrient delivery and age-fighting goodness gets down deep into the dermis, where it is needed.

The dermis is the skin’s supporting layer, and where collagen and elastin is produced. The dermis is what gives our skin its strength and elasticity. So it makes sense that anything beneficial for the face needs to get down to this layer.

Our Mediderm Visage does this because it is medical grade.  Using our diagnostic technology, ultrasonic technology, peel infusions and light therapy, we can address any skin problem deep down, to revive and heal the skin for amazing anti-aging benefits.

In fact, many of our clients say that they had no idea a facial could rejuvenate the skin so effectively. So visit us at Facial Care By Sia, for the best facial around.

Does summer mean a few extra pimples on your face?

For many of us, summer means a few extra pimples on the face here and there. Why? Because of the extra synthetics we apply to our face during the summer months, and because the heat means more sweat.

Thanks to the harsh Australia sun, going out into the sun without sunscreen is a no-no. But what many sun-goers don’t realise is, most sunscreens are very chemical-heavy and clog your pores.

This prevents natural cell turnover and traps sweat and bacteria in the skin, leading to extra pimples on the face and body. Makeup is also a problem in the summer months, as it, too, clogs the pores and traps sweat.

So, in summer, Facial Care By Sia recommends changing your skin care products slightly, to avoid extra pimples on your face.

By using a physical mineral sunscreen, you are replacing all the chemicals with natural minerals found in the earth. This is far kinder to the skin, not to mention more effective than chemical sunscreens.

Why is a physical sunscreen better than a chemical sunscreen? Find out here.

Similarly, in summer, try using a mineral makeup instead of your old foundation. Mineral makeup will not only allow your skin to breathe while giving you great coverage, it will also help to heal any pimples of the face and provide sun protection too! Contact us to find out more.

Does microdermabrasion work?

Does microdermabrasion work? That’s a good question, and one that skin care professionals are divided over.

Microdermabrasion involves deeply exfoliating the face using some kind of abrasive. This removes the top layers of skin and minor imperfections like lumps and bumps, pimples and blackheads, leaving the skin feeling very smooth.

Microdermabrasion is a throwback to a time in skin care research when dermatologists decided the top layers of the skin were ‘dead’ and needed to be exfoliated.

But Facial Care By Sia, backed by the latest research worldwide, believes otherwise. The top layer of our skin, or the epidermal barrier, is actually made up of specialised skin cells called corneocytes. This epidermal barrier is actually what protects the rest of our skin from pollutants, bacteria and UV rays.

Why over exfoliating actually accelerates the aging process.

In fact, the barrier is so crucial to skin functioning, that the body will divert blood and nutrients from the skin’s supporting layer to fix it if it is damaged. This takes nutrients away from where they are most needed.

Rather than taking away from the skin, Facial Care By Sia believes it is far more effective to add to the skin by using natural skin care, technologically advanced anti aging treatments and avoiding over exfoliation.

So if you were wondering ‘does microdermabrasion work?’ contact Facial Care By Sia for a better skin care answer!

Try blue light acne treatment for acne

You don’t have to over-strip and dry out your skin to effectively treat acne. In fact, just a simple light treatment at Facial Care By Sia can make a big difference to acne.

At Facial Care By Sia, we offer the latest in light therapies in conjunction with our chemical-free, medical grade skin care and our skin treatments, including blue light acne treatment.

Blue light acne treatment kills the bacteria that causes acne and stimulates the cells to heal and repair the skin.

Our Bio Light Therapy is amazing and can heal many skin conditions effectively, without chemicals or stripping the skin, including acne, because light therapy increases collagen synthesis, cellular growth and accelerates wound healing.

Used along with our medical grade acne treatments, blue light acne treatment can help heal existing acne, including acne that’s under the skin and not yet visible to the naked eye, regulate oil production and gently unblock pores.

To find out more about blue light acne treatment, visit Facial Care By Sia.

 

Facial toner—do we need it?

It is drummed into us from a young age: cleanse, tone and moisturise. Cleanse, tone and moisturise.

But do we really need to be doing this?

If you are using an over-the-counter facial toner then the answer is: no!

The cosmetics companies would have you believe that a facial toner will magically ‘close your pores’ before you moisturise.

This is misleading in two respects: first, the pores are there to guide sebaceous oil to the surface of the skin and they do not, in fact, ever ‘close’.

Second, most facial toning products on the market today contain nothing more than water, alcohol, chemicals, fragrances and colours.

These chemicals can dry out your skin, causing the skin to produce more oil, and damage the natural lipid mantel, also called the epidermal barrier, that protects our bodies from environmental pollutants.

If your skin is normal and you use good quality, chemical-free skincare, then a facial toner is unnecessary.

Facial Care By Sia’s name is synonymous with the best hair removal technology in Australia today. But did you also know that every Facial Care By Sia clinic is also a skin rejuvenation clinic?

That’s right. By using our amazing technologies, skin care, medical-grade facials and the latest in skin care research, we can significantly improve the appearance and health of your skin, without surgery, at all our rejuvenation clinics.

Is there a way to boost the skin’s own firming cells without pain or surgery? Find out here.

The key to skin rejuvenation is to boost collagen and elastin production in the skin to pre-aging levels. This provides the plump, taut look of young skin and reduces the look of sagging, wrinkles, hollows and more. Facial Care By Sia has a number of methods to boost collagen and elastin the skin, including our new skin tightening technology, our medical-grade facials, our medical-grade skin care, our new Regen Pen, and our light therapy.

Try Facial Care By Sia’s new photodynamic therapy

Facial Care By Sia’s new Bio Light Therapy can almost be considered to be a miracle in the skin care industry.

Photodynamic therapy, or light therapy, has long been used by doctors and other medical professionals to heal common skin conditions, like bacterial infections, and is even used in advanced operating theatres around the world to accelerate healing.

But it is only in the last decade that the myriad of benefits available from photodynamic therapy have become more carefully studied and widely used.

Light therapy involves exposing the skin to various coloured light wavelengths to heal and improve the skin.

True or false: dynamic light therapy can get rid of acne. Click here for the answer.

Our Bio Light Therapy has been a boon for many of our clients suffering from conditions like acne, infections, aging, eczema, swelling, bruising, psoriasis and rosacea. This is because light therapy achieves accelerated wound healing, deep cell stimulation and a significant reduction in bacteria.

In our clinics, we use blue light therapy for acne, red light therapy to stimulate collagen and for skin rejuvenation, infra red light therapy to calm inflammation and assist skin healing, green light therapy to minimise capillaries, and yellow light therapy to reduce excess pigmentation.
